Sculptures Built from Repurposed Objects and Hammer-Formed Steel by Greg Brotherton 

Using antique cash registers, telephones, beer taps, hammer-formed steel and other repurposed objects, artist Greg Brotherton constructs creepy, ghoulish sculptures that appear as if born from a collaboration between Tim Burton and Edouard Martinet. Via his website:

With a consuming drive to build things that often escalate in complexity as they take shape, Greg’s work is compulsive. Working with hammer-formed steel and re-purposed objects, his themes tend to be mythological in nature, revealed through a dystopian view of pop culture.

You can see much more of his work here, and he’s also the co-founder of Device Gallery in San Diego. (via lustik)

Wire Sculptures by Barbara Licha 

Polish-born artist Barbara Licha now lives and works in Sydney, Australia. Though she also works in paint and other forms of mixed media, her tangled wire sculptures of figures in various poses and states of suspension really caught my eye. Via her website:

Polish born artist Barbara Licha’s recent sculptures explore the physical and emotional space of our contemporary urban environment. Here is a world where human emotion meets the exaggeration of our imaginations, the human condition magnified by dreams that linger and our memory of the past.

Rat vs. Possum: Fat Monk, Directed by Lucy McRae 

I’ve been wanting to do a post on “body architect” Lucy McRae for quite a while after discovering her somewhat creepy metallic skin and safety pin clips that explore the body’s relationship with artificial skins made from found objects. McRae makes her directorial debut in this carefully choreographed music video for the Australian band Rat vs Possum. (via your music today)

Degenerative Sculptures by Tim Silver 

Sydney-based artist Tim Silver creates these striking figures that appear to gradually disintegrate over time. I’m not sure if the process takes minutes or days and I wonder if it requires external intervention like the application of heat or water, but regardless the photos are amazing if not a bit haunting. He’s also applied the same technique to objects like bottles and cassette tapes, and in a piece entitled Untitled (Killing me Softly) a human figure’s sandy skin is gradually stripped by ocean waves.
